Testing Source Tarballs

From: Darrell Anderson <humanreadable@...>

I want to test my build scripts against source tarballs. How do you plan to provide source tarballs when 3.5.12 goes official?

To test here, I presume I need to strip the svn directory of the svn files and directories. Yet how are you planning to provide the make and configure files in tarballs?

Are you going to provide static snapshots of the make and configure files, as was the practice back in the original KDE tarball days, or are you going to expect end-users to build those files like we do now with svn?
